Crow has left us. Such tragedy has stifled the last light of the forum.

Don't be down. There's going to be a pixel art come back. I can feel it.  :y:

Just noticed: the 4 rightmost 'Featured' banners produce an error page, titled "URL Shortener":

"Destination

Unknown

Everything's working on our side, so the short link you clicked is either wrong or has been retired."

I'm pretty sure that the last banner links to 0xDB's glossary/topic summary thread.. which is definitely still here and accessible if I hunt it down in the forum. The URL in the banner differs in one way -- it's http:// rather than https://.

There's no apparent logic to it -- the first banner link is https and works, the second and third are NOT https but still work, and the fourth and all after that are not https and do not work.

Can anyone else confirm this behaviour? Again, banner links 1,2,3 work, and banner links 4,5,6,7 bring up the error page.

(hopefully an easy fix might be to make all the links https...)
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

It appears to me that the links that don't work are still pointing to wayofthepixel.net instead of pixelation.org, so the forwarding/redirection appears to be broken.

Yeah, that's probably it :) It's good you noticed the domain difference.

I didnít know it was possible to post that many threads  :-\
To achieve mastery is not to be able to work without thinking; rather it is to have total control of one's choices.
